Recipe of the Week

Here are some yummy treats that I made that are sugar free, but tasty all the same! They're taken from this site; http://www.marksdailyapple.com/cocoa-and-coconut-snacks/#more-10893 ...check it out for other ideas!

Cocoa and Coconut Snacks

1/2 cup each:

Pecan nuts
Hazel nuts
Pumpkin seeds
6-8 dates
2-4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
To taste:

Unsweetened cocoa powder
Freshly ground coffee
Shredded coconut


  1. Run the nuts and pumpkin seeds in a food processor until ground into a fine flour.
  2. Remove the nut flour and grind the dates and shredded coconut in the food processor until smooth.
  3. Mix these ingredients together with coffee and cocoa powder according to taste.
  4. Finally, add the coconut oil and mix it all together by hand. Roll the paste into small nibbly balls and sprinkle them in shredded coconut.
  5. These snacks should be refrigerated to become firm.
I didn't have time to roll them all out, so I pressed them into a glass pan and sprinkled them with coconut.
